NINDS encourages applications for Support of Competitive Research (SCORE) Research Advancement Awards. This announcement is made together with 11 other NIH components.
The objective of the SCORE program is to promote the development of faculty at minority-serving institutions in order to increase their research competitiveness and promote their transition to non-SCORE external sources of funding. The program is expected to increase the participation of individuals from groups underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research, and to enhance the institutions’ research bases.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Hinda Zlotnik, Minority Opportunities in Research Division, National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS); telephone: 301-594-3900; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
